Collective Consciousness and Potential, Formless Substance, Imprintation and Manifestation
Everything in the universe is energy based, and all manifested reality is simply universal energy which has been manipulated/transformed by the Collective Consciousness, with its Collective Potential and Formless Substance.
Moreover, we as sentient beings are part of that Collective Consciousness, and can be equated to Conscious Thought-Force Energy. And through personal experience, we expand our Individual Consciousness by adding to the "energy" that we are, with the "energy" that we are not.
In the 4th Dimension (Etheric, Mental, Conscious, and Source Realms), we exist as pure conscious thought forms (See "The Experiential Bodies" and "The Fourth Dimensional You" in FAQ); however, in the Three Dimensional Experiential Realm (the physical universe), we interface our Conscious-Selves, through our Physical Bodies, and thereby effectively experience that which is manifested in the Physical Realm. An important aspect, of Individual, and Collective-Consciousness, is the Collective-Ptential, which is expressed through the Formless-Substance, that pervades, within, without, and in-between every-thing, and it is through the Formless-Substance, that all Manifested rReality, comes into being.
Consequently, an important aspect, of individual and collective-consciousness, is the collective-potential, which can be expressed through the formless-substance that pervades, within, without, and in-between every-thing. And, it is through the formless-substance, that all manifested reality comes into being.
Additionally, the collective-consciousness with its collective-potential, has a powerful inherent drive to explore its full existential-self, through the transformation of its potential, into a physical experiential reality. This is the very essence and purpose, of an unfolding universe that seeks to express and experience its own infinite potential.
The transformative ability of the collective-consciousness, with its collective-potential, is activated by thought-forms, which are impressed upon the formless-substance. And this results, through the universal law of cause and consequence, in the manifestation of the corresponding physical-reality.
"As above, so below, for the fulfilling of all things."
Thus it is that the unfolding universe is a great sentient and living presence, comprised of the Collective-Consciousness with its Collective-Potential. And everything in the unfolding universe, is composed of the Formless-Substance through which all things proceed/are transformed into a Physical and Experiential Manifested Reality.
